Add Custom Template to Favorites


DevDude90

Idea

I tried looking this up in forums and other areas around Evernote online but couldn't find any solution to this.

When I start a new notebook I get a selection of templates I can apply to the new note right under the "Title" section image.thumb.png.48fd8bb38bffc0a15e1d746519329a32.png . I created a custom template, but am unable to add it to this list for easy application of the template. Instead, I have to go to "... Open Gallery" and click "My Templates" and apply it from there. Is there a way to have a feature added that allows us to add our custom templates to this list when we create a new note?

Yes! I need to be able to apply a custom template to all new notes in a certain notebook, or at least have the shortcut right there when the note is created. I have a template I use everyday to structure my workflow and it's a waste of time sorting through the templates to apply it.

Seriously who is the product owner for features?  Recommended templates might serve as a good source of inspiration, but more likely users will personalize/customize their own and those are the ones we want to have quick access.

This is an obvious one that needed to be prioritized since the feature went live.

For whatever reason you are only offered templates created by EN - maybe because they are coded in the background for the AI to select some.

You've said on a couple of occassions that EN use AI to select relevant notes to be added. What's your evidence that we don't all just have the ability to add the 8 notes that EN have decided, in their infinite wisdom, are most important.

Correct - it is a dumb selection only. Dumb because I can’t select some of my own.

Funny side aspect: In the preview it shows all in English. When I apply it, it turns into the native language. Some details are different as well.

As an example the table in the weekly planner uses a different color for every day, looking at the preview. When I apply it, it is all in dull grey.

Of which feature ?

When I get at templates on my Mac (EN 10.27) in a new note, it remembers where I have been when I left it the last time.

If the last view was my own template page, it will open this selection again when I click on "Open Gallery ...". 

But I don't want to have to click "Open Gallery...", I want to be able to add my own Favourite templates to the list. I agree with the comment above that it feels like the product owner for Evernote doesn't use templates, or doesn't use the product at all.

Very simple:

Place a „template“ note in your shortcuts. To create your daily note, create a duplicate of this note. It will even be placed by default in the same notebook, and carry the same tags as the Blueprint note.

This may be simple however it's frustrating to have to hack together what should be a common sense use case. Duplication isn't the same as Create New in the mind so it takes habit forming just to adopt this hack. And granted I'm still getting familiar to EN again but why can't I even access the template gallery without having to go through a new note? 

I would also jump at the chance to customize a notebook to have it's new notes follow a selected template (my own specifically.) Could also be as powerful to customize the main picklist of options (i.e. + > Note | Task | Sketch etc) to instantly create from a favorite template without starting from blank and requiring another click (or several as this thread highlights to use a custom template.)
